Likely not, but you need to have a personal injury attorney who specializes in sexual assault of minor cases look at the circumstances of the release. There are situations where releases can be set aside, but they are rare and narrow.
Good luck to you.

If the WCJ did not appoint a guardian then you have none and you should be cashing your checks, not someone else. Speak to the WC carrier and demand that the checks be sent directly to you. If someone then takes the checks and cashes them, it is a matter for the district attorney.
